What is a public IP address?

Your public IP address is the ip address that is visible to other devices that you connect to on the internet. Say you visit WhatIsMyIp.Host - then we can see your public IP address. Typically, if someone talks about an "IP Address" they are referring to your public, not private, IP address.
